Dennard is a top 20 pick. As much as I'd like to get him in the second round, if we want him, he's a first round selection. If anything, Louis Nix is more likely to drop due to his knee injury and fluctuating weight issues.
I really hope Spence becomes a play maker for us (@teegre convinced me, finally) but he has to play a down in the NFL first. Baby steps.
